Use this kit to create a pair of matching textured pendants for you and a pal.
Wanna show someone you care?
That pal who's always at the end of the phone/zoom call, maybe that workmate who really gets it or your significant other?
Gift that special someone this kit, get creative together or use it yourself to surprise your bestie! I will cast a pair... one for you and one for your pal.
HOW DOES IT WORK? This new version of the T.I.Y Kit, uses polymer clay combined with interesting textures that can be found around your home to create one stunning and completely unique pendant. You will learn how to attach it to a chain along with how to finish it with sandpaper. Your creation will then be cast twice for you and your friend in recycled sterling silver/gold. One will be sent to you and the other will be sent to your pal, for you both to treasure forever.
The T.I.Y KIT allows you to take the time to handcraft a necklace that is designed and made by you, for you and your bestie. It can't really get any more unique that that!
WHAT'S IN THE KIT? Your kit includes everything you need to get creative from your kitchen table, sofa or the back seat of your car, what ever floats your boat.
• Polymer clay • 15cm ruler • 45cm sterling silver chain • Square of baking paper • Cocktail stick • 3 different grades of sand paper • Return envelope • Info sheet • Design sheet • Design Info • Order form • A jewellery pouch • A tutorial video (once your T.I.Y KIT has been ordered, I will send this to you)
One important thing to say - you will need an oven that can reach 110 °C.
HOW DO I GET THE SHINY STUFF?
Once you've completed your masterpiece, simply put it in the pre-paid envelope and pop it in your local postbox, once I have received your creation, your sterling silver pendant should take 3/4 weeks to be cast, finished and delivered to you!
Once received, gold plated silver pendants should take 4/6 weeks to be cast, finished, plated and delivered to you!
ANY HIDDEN COSTS? Nope, materials and return UK postage costs included.
HOW DO I BUY A KIT? Simply select what metal and chain type you would like from the drop down menu.
-Gold Plated Sterling Silver £215
If you buy a silver kit and decide later on that you would like it plated, that's no problem, you can pay an additional £35 per necklace to have it plated afterwards.
This was the exact process I used to create the Root Range, which is my best selling range! I took an imprint of a cabbage leaf into some polymer clay, formed the impressions into geometric shapes, baked them in the oven and then cast them in recycled silver.
This is such a tactile and hands on process, you do not need any jewellery making skills at all, you can even get your little ones involved (with adult supervision of course!)
This Pair of Pendants idea was inspired by K + G ❤️ A couple of lovely new parents who wanted to create unique Christmas gifts for their baby's grandparents... Using the T.I.Y KIT they took an imprint of their new born sons finger print in polymer clay and I then cast extra pendants for gifts. How cute!
